South Africa’s Envisionit Deep AI gets $1.65M to expand access to medical imaging – Tech Crunch

Dr. Jaishree Naidoo was in charge of pediatric radiology at a South African hospital in 2014 when she had a moment of epiphany after coming across a news story on the usage of AI recognition pattern in distinguishing animals.

As a radiologist with 20 years of experience, Naidoo was already familiar with pattern recognition, and she could immediately see how AI could be used in the industry to transform the access to diagnostic imaging.

DEEP AI imaging diagnositics help doctors prioritise care

South African start-up Envisionit has developed technology that can scan more than 2,000 x-rays per minute!

Overwhelmed health teams can use all the help they can get. As COVID-19 cases continue to peak and trough in communities worldwide, other health problems are stacking up, creating backlogs of examinations and treatments. For areas that were underserved by healthcare resources before the pandemic—such as paediatric radiology in Africa—the challenges are even more severe.

Artificial Intelligence in Medicine

The world of medical care seems obsessed with only one thing at the moment. The c word that is not cancer. But beyond the immediate global healthcare challenge of the pandemic technological forces are fundamentally altering the shape of medical care and the interface between flesh and chips grows ever closer.

What does all of this mean for the way we access healthcare, the cost of healthcare and of course the fundamental questions, of what it means to be human. To find out I’m joined now by Jaishree Naidoo Paediatric Radiologist and CEO of Envisionit Deep AI & J Johan Steyn, Lead Architect: Automation at PwC South Africa

RADIFY for COVID featured on eNCA

A Joburg medical technology company has launched a new platform which helps doctors diagnose people with COVID-pneumonia. This platform has been added to its artificial intelligence solution for radiologists.

Usually, after doctors take X-rays of patients, the results can take several days. And that’s why RADIFY™ — an online platform created by Envisionit Deep AI™ — is a game-changer.

The RADIFY™ platform eliminates waiting for results and can also identify which patient is a high risk for contracting COVID-19 by simply analysing an X-ray of their chest.

Ventureburn: Healthtech offers free AI tool

Envisionit Deep AI™ has just launched an online version of Radify™, an artificial intelligence (AI) solution for radiologists and medical doctors.

Synapse Magazine Feature

How Envisionit Deep AI™ wants to Democratise Access to Healthcare in Africa at 2000 X-rays Per Minute. Despite Africa having the world’s youngest population, the continent suffers from a shortage of paediatric specialists. Estimates put the number of fellowship trained paediatric radiologists on the continent at less than 20. IT’S TELLING that a country as developed as South Africa only got its first qualified paediatric radiologist in 2010. That specialist, Dr Jaishree Naidoo, believes that human capacity alone cannot solve the challenges the continent faces in that field. Now, together with co-founders Terence Naidu and Andrei Migatchev, Dr Naidoo is looking to take on the shortage of paediatric specialists with artificial intelligence (AI) through her medtech startup EnvisionIt Deep AI™ which was launched last year in January.
